I saw cute tissue holder that were painted with chalk paint. So I decided to make one also. I got a 32oz wide mouth jar.
I used wide mouth mason jar. Then I got Waverly chalk paint in a few colors, Acrylic matte finish sealer, and Kleenex Perfect Fit (in a tube box).
I spray with the matte sealer first based on other people’s suggestion. Then I painted twice and sprayed again to seal.
I also cut out vinyl as a stencil. My first attempt on anything other than paper craft. It is so much fun!
Kleenex Perfect Fit looks like this. Just take the rid and tissue and put it into the far when you are done.
Happy Halloween! We already went to a Halloween event by Vue de Vire, my hubby as Slash (from GNR) and I as a rock band groupie from 80’s!
But before we decided what we were going to be, I found a shark costume for Mochi thinking he can be a shark. But after I put it on him, I realized it is more like a shark eating him…
And we bought our camera to take pics of him in other people’s decorated frontyard…

I saw a set of powder on sale at Michael’s and bought it without knowing how to use it. It just looked like glitter powder…
It turns out flocking powders are kind of fuzzy after you apply it on paper with glue. I like it better than glitter powder!
It is hard to see in the pictures. I will have to take better photos next time!
Today is my husband’s stepdad’s birthday. So I made chocolate creme brulee, got some sushi from
Nijiya and went over to their house.
They loved the chocolate creme brulee! I used a recipe from
I saw a cute card on Pinterest with a hot air balloon that was made with little buttons. So I looked at buttons I have and decided to create a balloon!
It also has pics of her dogs… White fluffy clouds are yarn.
And here is another one… This is for my husband’s dad. I used a pick of my husband when he was little…
1 of 2 father’s day cards I made… I usually have to make 3 father’s day cards, one for my husband’s dad, then his stepdad and my dad in Japan. But I was sick for 2 weeks, I was just too late to send him a card this year. Oh, well.
I saw a similar design with surfboards on Pinterest, which inspired me to make this car for my surfer friened. Simple, but I like it.
My brother-in-law’s daughter and their adopted daughter have birthdays that are few days apart, so I always make similar cards for them.
I got this pack of ‘happy birthday’ banners, so Iam trying to use them up…
I get inspirations from
Pinterest… I really like the circle cutout and wanted to use flowers I bought.
I keep finding nice card stock books at Tuesday Morning at great price. I have to stop buying and start making more cards.
